Beyoncé Set to Perform at City of Hope Gala

September 17, 2018

It was announced today that global icon Beyoncé will perform at the City of Hope gala on October 11 in Los Angeles. This will mark her first solo performance following the successful run of the biggest tour of the summer, with JAY-Z. OTRII stadium tour started in Cardiff, UK in June and is scheduled to wrap on October 4 in Seattle, Washington.

City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, is honoring Jon Platt, Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music, with its prestigious Spirit of Life® award. Platt has worked with Beyoncé since 2005.

Inspired by the guiding humanitarian principles of City of Hope and motivated by the institution's commitment to innovative medical research and compassionate patient care, a group of key industry executives founded the charity’s Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group in 1973. In its 45-year history, the group has raised more than $118 million for City of Hope and has honored some of the most important figures in the music and entertainment industry.

The evening’s host will be producer/entertainer Pharrell Williams and JAY-Z, multi-Grammy winner/entrepreneur, will present the award to Platt.

“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” said Jon Platt. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.”

Beyoncé And JAY-Z Announce A New Scholarship Program

August 26, 2018

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and Shawn "JAY-Z" Carter announce a new scholarship program that will award one exceptional senior high school student, with financial needs, 100K to put toward their enrollment in a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019. The award will serve as a dedicated university-based fund for each selected student throughout the duration of the student's enrollment.

This back to school season, students in OTRll Tour markets, who are preparing for college, will be chosen by Boys and Girls Club of America. Qualified students must demonstrate academic excellence and show financial needs that would make it hard for them to enter a college or university for the academic year 2018-2019.

The markets will include Atlanta, where the OTRll Tour plays at Mercedes Benz Stadium Saturday, August 25 and Sunday, August 26, Orlando, Miami, Arlington, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara and Seattle.

The Carters have had a long history of helping students with The Shawn Carter Foundation spearheading college tours to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and providing scholarships to college bound students nationwide

Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, created the Formation Scholars Award, a merit program, in 2017 to help female students start or further their college education, and this year announced the Homecoming Scholars Award, a second merit program, opened to qualified students, regardless of gender, to enter or continue their studies at one of eight HBCUs.

OTR II show descends into chaos as dancers tackle stage invader

August 26, 2018

A Beyonce and Jay-Z concert ended in chaos on Saturday night after a stage invader managed to make to get within feet of the super stars as they walked off stage.

Video of the performance in Atlanta showed the invader casually make his way on to the stage from the audience, before rushing after the power couple; when the dancers realised what happened they rushed to the back of the stage moments to stop his tracks, before security guards also rushed the stage.

Many of the session musicians also on stage seem unaware of what is taking place below them, as they continue to perform.

In videos, shared by concertgoers at the venue, it appears that the invader is held down by security guards, however fans took to Twitter to ask where security was in the first place.

Beyoncé’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure confirmed via Instagram that the pair are fine.

‘Beyonce and JAY-Z on stage tonight in Atlanta. Thank you to all the fans for your concern,’ she wrote on Instagram, ‘they are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.’

Beyoncé & JAY-Z's On the Run II Tour Surpasses $150 Million Earned

August 25, 2018

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s On the Run II Tour tops the Hot Tours list dated Aug. 25, thanks to the latest batch of earnings reported to Billboard Boxscore for the couple's successful trek. Their placement is fueled by recent engagements in Minneapolis, Detroit, and two sold-out shows for 86,000 fans at Chicago’s Soldier Field, which totaled $21.2 million in grosses.

With the addition of these four dates, Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s co-headline trek exceeds $150 million grossed, rising to a total of $150.7 million. Across 29 shows in Europe and the U.S., total attendance has reached 1.4 million. There are 19 dates left to report to Boxscore before the tour closes on Oct. 4 at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.

With another month and a half of dates still ahead for Beyoncé and JAY-Z, their tour is trending toward the $250 million mark. As implied by the tour’s name, it is the sequel to their original 2014 On the Run stint. The 2018 installment has already blown past its predecessor, which brought in $109.6 million.

The couple’s massive summer tour caps off a particularly fertile few years of their storied careers. They released a pair of complimentary albums, Beyoncé’s Lemonade in 2016 and JAY-Z’s 4:44 the following year. Combined, these two efforts yielded 21 entries on the Hot 100 and earned 3.5 million equivalent album units according to Nielsen Music. Together, they completed the trilogy with 2018’s Everything is Love, billed to The Carters. The joint album, released in the middle of their European leg, topped five Billboard charts dated June 30, 2018, including Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, Top Rap Albums, and Digital Albums.

Minnesota Governor Announces Statewide 'Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day'

August 15, 2018

Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton declared August 8th as a statewide “Beyoncé and Jay-Z Day” in anticipation of the megastar couple’s concert in Minneapolis. “Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taken home numerous awards from platforms such as the Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, BET Awards, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and NAACP Image Awards, among others and have sold millions of records worldwide,” Dayton wrote in an official proclamation.

“Through their lives and music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have inspired Minnesotans, and music fans around the world,” he continued.

The proclamation was signed shortly before the couple gave a joint concert at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Dayton’s announcement comes over two years after he declared May 23rd as statewide ‘Beyoncé Day’ before the 36-year-old singer gave a concert in Minneapolis in 2016. Neither one of the pair were born or raised in Minnesota, with Beyoncé from Texas while Jay-Z is from New York.

Tyler Mitchell Addresses Rumors About Beyoncé's Vogue Cover

August 15, 2018

Tyler Mitchell took to Twitter on Monday to support the claim made by Anna Wintour that her and Raul Martinez, Condé Nast’s Corporate Creative Director, were the ones responsible for hiring him for Beyoncé’s Vogue September cover.

"An article from @BoF explaining the leaks and rumors around our shoot. The truth is Raul Martinez and Anna Wintour proposed and hired me for the Vogue shoot and Beyoncé quickly agreed. https://t.co/KOQx7SgebS"

Wintour shot down reports that Bey was the only one involved with picking Mitchell, marking the first time that Vogue hired a black photographer to shoot a cover for the publication in its 126-year history. Instead, she stated the credit belongs to Martinez. "The concept and the photographer was entirely Vogue’s, specifically Raul’s," she told BoF.

Martinez says he first became aware of Mitchell after seeing his work in March’s Teen Vogue digital cover where he photographed gun control activists. When Beyoncé was presented with a list of photographers to work with for her shoot, she “immediately approved” Mitchell because of the historical implications that came with his hiring. He was also well known within Beyoncé’s inner circle after previously photographing her sister Solange.

Wintour also responded to the report that Beyoncé was given full editorial control, saying that like other big stars who grace the cover, it was more of a collaboration. As for those rumors of her departure as editor-in-chief, Wintour fired back, "I’m not going to address it, I’m not going to address it."

On The Run II Tour European Leg Grosses $87.6M

July 31, 2018

With the combined star power of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, it comes as no surprise that the first leg of the couple’s “OTR II Tour” was a wild success. Pollstar’s Boxoffice has received reports for the entire 18-night European excursion – and every single show sold out.

Presented by Live Nation Global Touring in association with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the stadium outing kicked off June 6 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. That gig sold 39,731 tickets and grossed nearly $4.2 million (£3.1 million).

The European run racked up a total of 871,012 tickets sold and grossed more than $87.6 million. The average show sold 58,067 tickets and grossed more than $5.8 million, with tickets ranging in price from as low as €10 ($11.69) in Rome and Milan, Italy, to as high as €175 ($204.44) in Barcelona. The average ticket price was $100.57, which would seem a bargain to catch two of the biggest artists around.

The biggest stop of the European leg was the two-night stand at London Stadium, which sold a total of 126,443 tickets and grossed nearly $11.2 million. The London show also happened to be the location for the couple announcing the surprise release of their collaborative Everything Is Love album. The other cities that were treated to two nights of The Carters were Paris and Amsterdam.

Beyoncé Given Unprecedented Control Over Vogue's September Cover

July 31, 2018

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave Beyoncé unprecedented control over the cover of the upcoming September issue, sources say, and the music icon hired the first black photographer to shoot a cover in the publication’s 126-year history.

The publication is contractually obligated to give Beyoncé full control over the cover, the photos of her inside the magazine and the captions, which she has written herself and are in long-form, according to two sources who are familiar with the agreement between Vogue and Beyoncé but aren’t authorized to speak to the press.

Wintour has always exerted complete control over the fashion bible, including selecting the outfits worn by cover models. Cover subjects are usually given little to no say in their photos and are sent the cover in the week ahead of publication, a source familiar with the editorial process at the publication told HuffPost.

Beyoncé chose Tyler Mitchell, 23, to be her photographer.

“I depict black people and people of color in a really real and pure way,” Mitchell, who has already made a splash by shooting campaigns for Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, told The New York Times in December. “There is an honest gaze to my photos.”

It is no surprise that Beyoncé was the big winner at the 2016 Soul Train Awards.

The awards were handed out Nov. 6 in a recorded show that was broadcast last night on BET and Centric.

Queen Bey took home four awards: album of the year for "Lemonade;" best R&B soul/female artist; and song and video of the year, both for "Formation."
It looks like Beyonce is rolling out “All Night” as the fourth US single from Lemonade. The cover art surfaced online today (here) and the Diplo-produced ballad is being added to rhythmic radio on December 6 according to All Access.


Somewhat amusingly, “All Night” is already a top 40 hit. The song debuted at number 38 on the Billboard Hot 100 after the release of Lemonade and has charted in Canada, France, UK and Australia among other countries. It could soar even higher if it gets a little love from pop radio — something “Formation,” “Sorry” and “Hold Up” failed to achieve.
The 2016 American Music Awards were held Sunday night at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater. Beyonce was nominated in four categories and won Tour of the Year for The Formation World Tour, beating out Madonna and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. Unfortunately, the singer didn't attend the ceremony.
It’s time to choose the best of the best in entertainment.

Whether you’re a movie buff, social media star in the making, or a music fanatic, whoever wins the People’s Choice Awards is up to the fans.

Voting is now officially open, so go to People’s Choice Awards’ Facebook page and peopleschoice.com to make your voice heard. Then, watch live on Jan. 18 on CBS to find out the winners.

Beyonce is nominated in three categories:

Perhaps you already know the premise of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, an Iraq War movie based on the novel of the same name, which dramatizes the titular veteran’s experience with PTSD during a Cowboys game. Perhaps you’ve read about the controversy over Ang Lee’s decision to shoot the film with a remarkably high 120 fps frame rate, which has the effect of making all the actors look like plastic dolls. This is not a post about either of those things. This is a post about how Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk features a fake Beyoncé — and also a fake Kelly and Michelle. But more importantly: Fake. Beyoncé.

Fake Beyoncé plays a small, but crucial role within Billy Lynn’s narrative: Destiny’s Child is headlining the halftime show where Billy (Joe Alwyn) and the rest of his squadron are being honored. In the film’s central set piece, the soldiers march with the trio to the stage, and then assemble behind them for a performance of “Soldier.” This triggers a bunch of PTSD flashbacks for Billy and the rest of the gang. As fake Bey, Kelly, and Michelle perform, we cut back to a battle the soldiers fought Iraq. It’s all an indictment of American mid-2000s excess — do you get it? (If you don’t get it, there’s an earlier scene where Billy has a sex fantasy while Kellie Pickler sings the national anthem.) Read more...
In August 2016, one of the worst U.S. natural disasters hit the storied city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and surrounding areas – historic flooding that left more than 60,000 homes destroyed and $8.7 billion in damages.

The flooding was also responsible for over a dozen deaths in the Baton Rouge area.

But while more than $55 million in federal aid was approved for reconstruction, families and businesses in the area are still struggling to recover from the rising waters.

On November 20, The Knowles family, along with Kelly Rowland and BeyGOOD, are looking to change that.

In a joint effort with ESSENCE, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Solange Knowles and Kelly Rowland – with support from Beyoncé and BeyGOOD, the singer's charitable organization founded in 2013 – will host Love On Louisiana: An Essence Hometown Heroes Tribute, a fundraising awards dinner to celebrate the resilience of Baton Rouge and to raise money for recovery efforts.

“We have continued to witness firsthand the strength of our long-term partners in Louisiana in the aftermath of natural disasters, and it is with great pride that we are partnering with Ms. Tina, Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly and BeyGOOD to harness the resources of our collective networks and join the community in rebuilding,” said Essence President Michelle Ebanks.

This year CAMERIMAGE Festival, The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography which takes place in Bydgoszcz, Poland, will present two remarkable films connected with the music video creativity.

The first is Beyoncé’s “LEMONADE”, the visual accompaniment to her 12-track sixth studio album and a portrayal of every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing.

The screening will tak place on November 13 at 12:15 p.m. an will be followed by a Q&A meeting with DPs Chayse Irvin and Malik Sayeed.

BeyonceOnline.org will be in attendance so you can expect a coverage of the event!

Additionally, Beyonce's "Formation" is nominated for Best Music Video and Best Cinematography in a Music Video. The winners will be announced during the Festival's Closing Ceremony on Saturday, November 21.
Beyoncé will join Jay Z on Friday in Ohio at a get-out-the-vote concert for Hillary Clinton, a source who overheard the news told CBS News.

Clinton will be joined by the music superstars at a rally at Cleveland State University heading into the final weekend before Election Day. The Clinton campaign is making an aggressive push to urge Ohioans to vote early.

Jay Z’s appearance had already been announced.

But the addition of his wife Beyoncé, one of the biggest entertainers in the world, adds even more star power to the Cleveland event.

The concert is aimed at millennials and African-American voters in the Democratic stronghold of Cuyahoga County, where Clinton needs big margins on election night to defeat Donald Trump, who is leading the polls in Ohio.

The music megastars are among several acts -- including Katy Perry, The National and John Legend -- helping Clinton make a final appeal to young voters.

The Clinton campaign declined to comment on the appearance.
The Country Music Association has responded to allegations that they deleted footage and mentions of Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks‘ 2016 CMA Awards performance.

An outcry from fans began Thursday afternoon (Nov. 3), after some began to notice and share on social media that social media mentions and CMA website video of the two acts’ performance of Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons” at Wednesday night’s (Nov. 2) 50th anniversary CMA Awards ceremony had been deleted. TMZ alleged that the deletions were due to racist and rude comments being posted, but the CMA says that the footage was removed at Beyonce’s request.

“Beyonce’s team hadn’t approved that, so we pulled it down,” CMA CEO Sarah Trahern tells the New York Times of a now-deleted promotional clip that teased Beyonce’s performance, adding that the clip was removed before the performance itself. “Fans can get kind of passionate and read other things into it.”

Additionally, Trahern explains, Beyonce provided her own photographer for the evening and only approved one official live video of the song, which is available on ABC.com and has been shared on the CMA’s social media channels.

“CMA has not erased any mentions of Beyonce’s performance on the CMA Awards. In advance of the broadcast, CMA removed a five-second promotional clip from ABC.com and CMA’s Facebook page. The promo was unapproved, and CMA removed it prior to the broadcast,” the CMA says in a statement to People, echoing Trahern’s comments. “Beyonce’s performance with Dixie Chicks was a highlight of the evening, and we are continuing to share the amazing full-length performance clip via our official social channels.” Read more...
There are numerous music legends slated to perform at the 2016 CMA Awards, and now it appears to be official — Queen Bey will be hitting the stage.

Multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that Beyoncé is currently in Nashville, which just happens to be where the CMAs will be airing from live tonight on ABC, and CMT reports that the star is set to perform at the show.

The Lemonade creator is not known as a country singer, but she wouldn’t be the first recording artists to cross genre lines at the CMAs. Justin Timberlake hit the stage with country star Chris Stapleton at the 2015 awards to perform their tracks “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Drink You Away.”

But what will Beyoncé perform?

A duet with one of the previously announced performers — of which there are many — is not out of the question. Or Queen Bey could do a solo performance of one of her originals. (Lemonade‘s country-twinged “Daddy Lessons”?) Or even a cover of a country classic.

If her recent Video Music Award performance is any indication, whatever Beyoncé would perform would be guaranteed to be what everyone is talking about tomorrow.

The 2016 CMAs airs live tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
It seems that Laverne Cox won herself more than a few admirers after channelling Beyonce on Lip Sync Battle – including the lady herself.

In fact, Beyonce was so impressed by the Orange Is The New Black’s star’s tribute to her on the Spike show that she even sent her flowers to show her appreciation.

Which a clearly thrilled Laverne didn’t hesitate to show off on social media.

She wrote on Instagram: "When you are at work on #Doubt your new cbs legal drama premiering in 2017 and get flowers and a hand written card from the Queen Bey herself @beyonce. Thank you Beyonce for such a thoughtful gesture. You didn't have to but it means so much that you did. I am so happy you enjoyed the #LipSyncBattle tribute to Destiny's Child. You know I live for everything you do. EVERYTHING!! Thank you, thank you thank you!!!!❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ Thank you @dreamadew for thinking to take photos to document my utter shock and disbelief moments after opening the card.
